Unless that's a permanent installation,, how do they move that circle of rocks without messing up the positioning of the rocks? Unknown artist?

The sculpture was not permanent.

They also had some paintings that were painted on the walls. These too are not permanent. The artist writes a set of instructions for a painting, and someone else executes the painting. Eventually, the wall gets painted over with white paint, and the work (that version of it) is gone forever.

Nice pictures but museums don't normally allow photography, do they?

Most do allow photography, but you can't use flash. Sometimes the non permanent shows are off limits to photography.

So those rocks were not precisely replaced in the same exact position as the original creator artistically placed them? It's just a circle of rocks out of a wooden crate with a note that says, "Place these rocks in an 8-foot circle. Enjoy."

Depends on the museum. Some are just flash, some just got fed up with idjits that don't know how to shut flash off and some are protecting content. I've even had to pay a paparazzi tax.

It was nice; it has been quite awhile since I've been there.

The last show I saw in SF was the Bonnard exhibition at the Legion of Honor.
